The revolutions in England, North America and France ushered in the modern political age. "Cultural Revolutions" analyzes the place of material culture, ritual and everyday life during these revolutions, providing a fresh and engaging interpretation of the strategies used to transform people from monarchists into republicans.
Auslander shows how, faced with the challenge of persuading large populations to alter their previous convictions and loyalties, revolutionaries in all three countries turned to the power of culture. From the banning of dancing in Cromwell's England, to the "homespun" clothing of revolutionary America, to France's new calendar and naming systems, the author assesses how daily habits and tastes were altered in the interest of political change.
